Quelles jolies couleurs ! J'aime la forme de son bec qui est inhabituelle.
Louis: Le bec a la forme d'extraire le nectar des fleurs. Merci, Martine.

This is wonderful, what a great scene and what wonderful colours the bird has.

Oh, what a beak! I agree with Lisl.

This is an absolutely super duper bird and image Louis, it has made my day!
Louis: Thank you Chris - glad to be of service.
It looks like painted metal Louis
Louis: There is that part of the look, Bill.
Wow, that beak looks useful Louis.
Louis: Some flowers are long and tubular and they sometimes hold the best nectar. That is where the beak is most useful, gutteridge.

We have 3 species of Sunbury visiting and nesting in our garden, Louis...a triple blessing!
Louis: We have a number of species in the country, but only two types are often seen in my garden. When I spray the strelitzia nicolaii with water, they quickly appear from somewhere.
Have you stunned him with song? Spectacular capture!
Louis: If one is cautious and have a long lens, you can make this picture. If I would open my mouth to 'sing' it would fly away ...
It has a lovely colour scheme.
Louis: The various sunbird types are known to be colourful. They are also difficult to photograph - fidgety creatures.
Terrific! You are doing well with the birds at present! I'm envious!
Louis: Thank you Tom
stunning shot, Louis. i really like the curve of the beak and the metallic sheen on the feathers.
Louis: Thank you Ayush - they are well adapted for their living style.
spectacular is all that i need to say Louis...

I like the depth of field...
Louis: Thank you Larry.
